  • 4 boneless pork chops 1-inch thick
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 3 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • green onions thinly sliced (optional)


  • Take the pork chops out of the refrigerator 20-30 minutes before cooking. Sprinkle the chops on both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and add the olive oil and butter.
  • Once the butter is melted and sizzling, add the chops to the pan. Cook for about 5 minutes until well browned.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the honey, soy sauce, and cider vinegar.
  • Turn the chops over. and reduce the heat to medium-low. Sprinkle the minced garlic around the chops and cook until golden, about 30 seconds (don’t move the chops).
  • Pour the honey mixture around the pork chops and continue to cook about 4-5 minutes longer until cooked through but still a little pink (135 F).
  • Remove the chops to a plate and cover with foil.
  • Increase the heat to medium and simmer the glaze until it thickens, about 5 minutes. Add any juices accumulated in the plate with the pork chops.
  • Pour the glaze over the pork chops and sprinkle with green onions if desired.
